Pyelonephritis is an inflammation of one or both kidneys and appears in by entering the kidney microorganisms. Usually it is the so-called ascending infection, spreading the ureter from the bladder. Sometimes organisms penetrate the kidney together with the filtrate from the blood. In people, who are most likely to develop pyelonephritis occur
recurrent infections of the lower urinary departments (cystitis), bladder stones (urolithiasis), congenital defects in the genitourinary system, diabetes and neurological disorders (stroke) bladder. The risk is increased in pregnant women. The growing uterus can “press down” the ureters to other organs and obstruct the flow of urine from the kidneys. Early and complete treatment of any infection lower urinary tract (such as cystitis) can significantly reduce the risk of pyelonephritis. Microorganisms penetrating into the kidneys, causing the development of inflammation and edema. On the proliferation of these processes damaged kidney tissue is replaced by scar tissue.
Scar tissue formation after repeated exacerbations or by chronic course of the disease is a violation of the functional ability of the kidneys. After some time, can develop a complete kidney failure. Pyelonephritis occurs in both acute and chronic. The disease begins suddenly arise fever, chills, pain the area of the affected kidney (renal), and discomfort in the abdomen. If pyelonephritis associated with the occurrence of a bladder infection, the simultaneous may occur as symptoms of cystitis.
Chronic pyelonephritis. During the chronic inflammatory disease process and infection observed indefinitely. If there is no exacerbations of the disease, the obvious symptoms may be absent. There a number of
general symptoms as fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, reduce weight and increase in blood pressure. With the formation of the affected kidney scar tissue usually show signs of kidney failure. When pyelonephritis girudoterapiya best shown in complex treatment. Leech puts in the lumbar region (point at an average the line between the spinous processes II-III lumbar vertebrae and point outward from it both sides of the first and second wings back); sacrum (point sacrococcygeal articulation and projection of the sacrum); nizhnebryushnuyu in the area and hepatic zone (in the liver projection point in the IV intercostal space). Mostly used in terms of the lumbar region. As a rule, one session puts a large number of leeches – 7-8. Wherein be sure to carry out the control of blood biochemical parameters.
The course of treatment – 7-12 procedures. Necessary and repeated courses of treatment. The first two procedure is conducted in a day, then – 2 times a week
